  1. Paddy the best journalist there is in New Zealand, yeh right.
    How come none of these fabulous one sided leftist bastards knew that things were more than a little dodgy around TVNZ or TV3? How come none of the bosses knew?
    Well they were absolutely great at their jobs then weren’t they?///////////. Most journalists investigate all things happening around the world but not in NZ. The lazy useless bastards, busy sitting at their desks on the internet, is about all I can say about all of them.
    Surely one of them, any one would have known things were not looking too good financially? Why did NO ONE ask the accountants working there? Surely they must have had meetings management accountants etc or not? Of NOT why not???? Slide off all of you I would say, useless incompetents the lot of you. I hope you don’t get a job as a journalist again. Shame on the lot of you.

    Good morning Ma;am.

    How come none of these..etc. etc. etc.?

    Easily, cos they had become prostitutes to the ardern government, found that in fact they LIKED the guaranteed income that was coming their way, so went along for the ride, ‘cos they were ALWAYS glad to be paid. while deliberately Ignoring the fact that who pays the piper calls the tune

    Any morality -type questions about what they were doing, did, of course, immediately of course go out the window, and they convinced themselves that they had absolutely no problems with convincing themselves that they were Reporting without fear or favour’ when in fact they were as much part of the problem as their masters, and indeed some such as Gower seemed to actually glory in their notoriety and power, especially as they could finally say EXACTLY what they thought, and abuse their enemies, and get away with doing-so by hiding behind the government’s skirt if their was any reaction they didn’t like..

    As we know, Gower et al were VERY willing participants (Especially as ‘Money talks’) and although they can now cry as much as they want to and say that things are unfair, history shows otherwise; That the NZMSM ‘journalists’ were quite happy to take the money and be stooges.

    Buyers remorse? ‘Taint so – and, given the chance they would all willingly do it again.

    • Correction there sir. Good morning.

      They had become prostitutes to many governments over many years and the Nats were as bad. Paul holmes was a Nat fat and so it went.
      As long as they could pimp the govt. in many different ways to fill the trough they kept on at it.
      Yes Arderns lot were possibly the worst but you have to look a long way back, probably to the Holland govt or even to Savage for media control.
      In england it went back to the first uses of the printing press. The Crimean War was instigated because the French and Germans used ,the then new press to harrange the British govt. into going to war up there. Doing their dirty work. (nothing has changed in that respect).

      Thank goodness for the internet and peoples ability to podcast etc.
      So much more to see and learn without the interference of god botherers and wefs and lbtq’s and so on.
      Elon would be the worlds Hero right now.

      Oh and Ed’s other post this morning is significant IMHO.

      • V2 is correct in that governments did not trust independent radio & imposed controls very early in the piece. From https://teara.govt.nz/en/radio/page-1

        # “Radio broadcasts in the early 1920s raised fears that uncontrolled use of the spectrum would interfere with government activities.”

        # “Due to Labour’s distrust of ‘hostile’ newspaper coverage, New Zealand became the first country to provide regular live broadcasting of Parliament. The government also created the world’s first state-owned commercial radio organisation. Advertising was allowed on commercial stations from 1936. In 1937 the NZBS was split into two divisions, the non-commercial National Broadcasting Service (NBS) and a state-run commercial division, the National Commercial Broadcasting Service (NCBS).”

        Government is about control. Governments fear anything that threatens that control.

  3. PM Christopher Luxon to meet US politicians, Nato leaders in Washington DC as fallout from President Joe Biden v Donald Trump continues
    Prime Minister Christopher Luxon kicks off his visit to Washington DC early tomorrow morning, meeting US politicians at Capitol Hill before attending the Nato Summit later in the week.

    In an interview with the NZ Herald ahead of his trip, Luxon said his first day in Washington DC was a chance for him to meet with both Republican and Democrat politicians, ahead of the US presidential elections in November.

    His invitation to the Nato Summit in DC this week will also give the relatively new Prime Minister the chance for his first face to face contact with the 32 Nato leaders – including potentially US President Joe Biden and new British PM Keir Starmer, as well as those from Europe and Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    It seems like we are still in the age of “where Britain Goes we follow”. what a disaster for NZ.
    why in Gods name are we sucking up to the CIA and nato.Well if you are a Pope follower then you know the reason.

    You can bet he won’t meet up with Trump who won’t be invited to anything. It will be all about china and Russia.
    He will come back with his head full of shit. Nothing changes in the Nat world.

    • Oh yay
      Because they achieved so much as leader and deputy leader
      There was ???
      and ???

      Nah, I got nothing.
      Spinning on the same axis of low achievers.eg. Matt Doocey is no Philip Burdon.

      Bridges is like the kid that at up straight in class and got the Diligence prize in Standard 4.
      Not very bright, means well, gets a bit tanty when he cant articulate himself.
      May even be a half decent dude; so why is he in politics.
      Probably with a religious Minister father he wants to tell others what to do , like daddy. Except daddy’s flock were there voluntarily to pursue a selected sky daddy.
      Brother in law of Simon O’Connor. Still not seeing an upside.

      Paula Benefit is still the person with no self control that she could not stop eating – like Lange- and needed surgery to stop her compulsion. Not someone I want leading anything. Cant control her urges, how can she be a leader?
      Did she sell any houses, at least?

    • There are 25,000 of these that could be deregistered.
      I say deregister the lot of them.
      Then make them reapply , with proof.
      Prove what actual good works they did.

      Then only give them a 10 year registration (5 yrs is still a good idea)
      Prove what good they did in the prior 10 (or 5) years.

      This could easily be self funding.
      At present the goo-mint (OUR Money ) pays out actual cash to one third of the donations made, while the ‘charidees’ keep 100%
      This is hundreds of million$ a year.
      A team of 40 could resolve this.
      Then I say 80% are BS fronts.
      Especially if you make the burden of proof on the charidees.

      Can you tell me Oxfam under Phyllis Twyford was not dodgy.
      green MP Coated took over from there.
      It reeks.

      would Nicki Willis with her English litt degree understand this ?

      • It’s the tax exemption part of charities that needs to be screwed over. In too many cases the state foregoes tax on the earnings of very wealthy people so they can support scams like Greenpeace or religious brainwashing organisations.

    • Isn’t there an Army Corps of engineers.
      Surely they have bugger all on
      I mean Willie Apiata was so good at building schools and hospitals he even got a Vic Cross.
      Aunty Helun told us this is what the troops in the A’Ghan were doing!!
      We need builders like that.

      What else are they going to do. March around the courtyard?
      Put them to work.
      Solutions.
      Its easy when you are NOT goo-mint.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/nz-news/350335893/campaign-launches-legally-protect-tino-rangatiratanga-flag

    if tama iti can shoot the nz flag then surely that proves theres no legal protections for misuses of flags? although there were those 2 that got charged for burning the flag once upon a time.

  5. Well Mr. A. Hooligan I called into the Blue Hill cafe in Owhango
    The takeaway coffee was good enough.

    I had a latte bowl yesterday in Waikanae.
    That was excellent.
    I ask if Bolger was dead yet.
    Sadly, they told me, NO

    the coffee in a crockery bowl will always beat that in a paper cup.
    That’s how it is !

    • Howi, I should have met you in O Whan Go for a coffee and given you the lowdown on our (including O Whan Go’s) former MP, Spud Bolger. The Grifter, Spud, The Great Helmsman, former serial frequenter of the Taumarunui Cossie Club is not as revered here as he is in his own mind. It is however of sad news you bring that the demise of Spud has not been yet, reported. But on the other hand I am sure Spud’s residential Twilight Home will be pleased to receive his monthly payments.

  6. I have just been informed Northports expansion plans have been turned down. This is due basically to the whinging early settler trash not getting what they wanted. How to economically destroy an entire area just to appease a very small minority who have done nothing but bludge off anyone who wants to get ahead in this area for as long as I’ve been here. I hope Northport and Marsden Maritime turn around cut their income off and fry these fuckers. If nothing else I suppose it proves appeasement never works. Their only hope now is to appeal to Shane Jones for fast to fast track the project.

  7. ACT New Zealand

    Human Rights Commission jets to Geneva to trash NZ’s reputation

    ACT is renewing calls to scrap the Human Rights Commission as it joins a reported “march of shame” to Geneva criticising New Zealand’s commitment to indigenous rights and calling the Coalition Government racist.

    “This has become absurd. Hard-up Kiwi taxpayers are forking out for an activist group to fly to Switzerland and trash New Zealand on the world stage,” says ACT Justice spokesman Todd Stephenson.

    “When the Commission says the Government is backsliding on indigenous rights, it gives examples like the return of local referenda for Māori wards, the disestablishment of race-based health services, and ACT’s legislation to ensure the Treaty delivers its promise of the same rights and duties for all.

    “The Human Rights Commission is obsessed with race and identity. It is dismissive of basic individual rights like free speech and the right to be safe from criminals, and it actively campaigns for policies that divide Māori from non-Māori. It is disgraceful that we give it $15 million a year to do this in the name of human rights and with the false credibility of quasi-government status.

    “New Zealand can be immensely proud of our record on human rights, including the ways we have redressed past wrongs committed against Māori through the Waitangi Tribunal. The prominence of Māori culture in New Zealand is a drawcard for tourists and trading partners. In trying to smear our hard-won reputation, the Commission threatens our industries and our diplomatic influence.

    “If the Commission leadership want to campaign against the government, they should join a voluntary activist group or run for Parliament. New Zealanders shouldn’t be forced to fund their political activism.

    “ACT’s heart goes out to members of the audience in Geneva – especially those indigenous people who’ve travelled from non-democratic countries facing very real human rights abuses, who will have to compete for speaking time against the Human Rights Commission’s hysterical tripe.”

  8. There’s a delicious irony in the position the Greens now find themselves in over the Darleen Tana fuck-up. Here we have a female dominated, Maori centric party being sunk by a Maori female.

    And it’s not the first time. Elizabeth Kerekere & Metiria Turei started the rot while Golriz Ghahraman, although not Maori provided the icing on the cake for those of us not enamoured with the lies & deceit of the far left. Chloe has made an absolute cockup by withholding the nuts & bolts of the taxpayer paid for report she quoted yesterday to unsuccessfully railroad her former associate out of parliament.

    Now it appears that even were she to invoke the waka jumping legislation that her party voted for but vehemently opposed it may not be successful. A read of https://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/2018/0039/latest/DLM7478605.html reveals that as the much discussed report is very light on what Tana is accused of, focussing instead on what she later told the party, Chloe may not be able to satisfy the speaker of the grounds for the MP’s dismissal.

    “Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive ” . 🙂

    • Whilst on the subject of puerile speed limits, in today’s issue of Pravda (formerly known as the Wairarapa Times-Age) there’s an article quoting motorcycle safety consultant Aaron Slight on the five kilometres of cable divider installed & completed early on this year on SH2 between Masterton & Carterton..

      It has been whacked no less than nine times in the past six months. Naturally the nannies think that nine head on collisions have been prevented. Normal people estimate the possible reduction in the death toll at about zero.

      Slight is quoted as saying that “the ‘corridor’ created by the barriers heightened a phenomenon called target fixation, where a person drove into an object that could potentially be fatal instead of avoiding it”. Together with the lowered 80kph speed limit still not removed by the useless Minister of Transport it’s a miracle that we haven’t seen people nodding off to sleep on the road!
